India may ban self-driving cars even before they become fully operational. Its transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari told the Hindustan Times on Tuesday: “I am very clear on this. We won’t allow any technology that takes away jobs. In a country where you have unemployment, you can’t have a technology that ends up taking people’s jobs.”
"Why India's Ban on Self-Driving Cars Is Misguided" is from the July 31, 2017 Innovations section of The Washington Post. It was written by Vivek Wadhwa and narrated by Sam Scholl.
